Excerpt: Wedge known for epic films (Ice Age), made an epic mistake here. First of all, where is the plot? I could consider a plot base (Bud by queen, facing the moon light to grow the forest again.), but where is the development? Is this epic-ness ?
Excerpt: There is some truth to the saying "You can't judge a book by its cover," but at the same time, it doesn't always apply. In the case of Epic, I got exactly what I anticipated; a generic kids' fantasy film, with not an original bone its body.
Excerpt: sure the title is a bit misleading even though it deals with a bunch of tiny human like creatures that disguise themselves as dead animals and grasshoppers and fight a war to protect their lands. Enter the actual humans in which one girl gets shrunk down to size then the real adventure begins.
Excerpt: When a movies title is literally Epic, It had better deliver on the promise that title implies. Epic works fine as an animated action/adventure film (a horribly maligned genre in my opinion,) but it never becomes as epic as its title promises.
Excerpt: Epic (2013) PG M.K. (Amanda Seyfried) has moved to the country to live with her father, Professor Bomba (Jason Sudeikis), after the death of her mother. Her father believes that the woods are inhabited by some sort of little beings that move too fast for humans to see. To her utter amazement, M.K.
Summary: Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer don't know a lot about directing movies. Its more like a Moronic Movie than an Epic Movie because they make morons out of too many actors from too many good movies. Especially Kal Penn and Crispin Glover.
